Well I’ve packed my bags
I’m moving on
Cause I’ve been waiting for too long

Cause livin’ with you is like a hole in the head
I know that I’ll soon be better off
Cause livin’ with you is like a hole in the head
I know well I know

I don’t care about anyone
Ya know that I’m better off (better off)
I don’t care about anyone
Ya know that I’m better off

I’ve explained get off my back
Far too long that I’ve lost track

Cause livin’ with you is like a hole in the head
I know that I’ll soon be better off
Cause livin’ with you is like a hole in the head
I know well I know

That I don’t care about anyone
Ya know that I’m better off (better off)
I don’t care about anyone
Ya know that I’m better off

Is this as good as it gets
And you know that…

I don’t care about anyone
Ya know that I’m better off better off
I don’t care about anyone
Ya know that I’m better off

    General CommentYet another great song delivered to us by our Canadian pals Theory of a Deadman.
    Its clear this guy is in a shitty relationship he has bin wanting to get out, and putting it off. Its just bin 'far to long' and he doesnt feel he needs to go into further explanation..... and thats it.
    Such a great song in just 2:51 seconds.

    General CommentHoly shit...as if only 2 comments. Saw these guys live, they were fucking awesome. Anyways, this song is obviously about someone living with someone most likely in a relationship, althogh it could be anything roommate, family member etc., and they just can't stand living with/being around them for whatever reason. One kick ass song by a kick ass Canadian band.

    General CommentThis song reminds me a lot of Nickelback's "Another Hole in the Head". Just because they're contracted under Kroeger doesn't mean that they songs hvae to be nearly identical. Don't get me wrong I like the song, and I like a Theory of a Deadman I like Nickelback, and I like that they sound similar in general, as I like this type of music, but the songs don't have to be lyrically similar.

    General CommentTOAD is one of the most underrated bands.

    but, this song is pretty self-explanatory. Basically just about a guy that's tired of his realtionship and is finally happy that he's over her and is ready to move on.

    General CommentThis song is about acceptance more then anything. I believe the narrator is speaking to himself, telling himself to finally end the relationship.
